If Michael Henman of the UNBC Timberwolves men’s soccer team isn’t studying history, he should consider changing his major.
Henman became the first player in Canada West history, dating back to 2006, to score three goals in two consecutive games over the weekend.
His hat trick on Friday in Prince George against his hometown team, the Victoria Vikes, propelled the TWolves to a 4-1 win. His repeat performance Saturday made up the entire scoring in the match for a 3-0 victory.
Even more impressive? Six goals on just six shots.
The fourth-year striker’s seven goals in four games this season leads both the conference and the country. As a result, he was named the Canada West Men's Soccer Player of the Week, and the U SPORTS Men's Soccer Player of the Week.
As for team history, Henman passed Francesco Bartolillo's single-season program record of six goals. Bartolillo did it in 15 games.
Henman and his teammates are on the road this weekend, playing Thompson Rivers on Friday and Saturday night in Kamloops.
